Memphis Grizzlies vs Orlando Magic: Fighting Finish! Techs, Ejection, Shoving

Was this a game or a literal fight to the finish line? Memphis falls to the Orlando Magic 107-92 but believe me this was a Grizzlies team no one has seen before. Being down by a 14-pt deficit will get any team’s tempers flaring up.

It all started in the 6:54 minute mark in the 3rd quarter. Matt Barnes of the Orlando Magic was called for the offensive foul on Memphis’s Hasheem Thabeet and became enraged. Barnes quickly got up and pushed Thabeet in the back. Hasheem shoved Barnes back which resulted in a 10 player shoving circle.

6 technicals were assessed in this brawling game. Vince Carter, O.J. Mayo, Hasheem Thabeet, and Matt Barnes were all T’ed up. Barnes was hit with 2 techs which is a automatic ejection. Oh, but wait, maybe those technicals got some of that Grizzlies blood boiling hot because Memphis came back and went up by 5pts….then the Magic run started.

Rudy Gay also received a technical when he was whistled for throwing the ball to the side of the court in the 4th quarter delaying the game.

Our Grizzlies were clearly showing signs of frustration of their year and where they should have been in the playoffs. We will get there next year because being 7 games out of the playoff picture really can not be made up with just 6 more games to go.
